Stuffed Quahog July 25

Les goes out shopping every day to acquire fresh food for our sumptuous meals. These guys are called stuffed quahogs and every fish market has their own personal offering.

Here's a recipe off the web that looks about right for my favorite kind that includes Portuguese sausage. The recipe doesn't mention the requisite glass of chilled rose. (A stuffed quahog tastes mostly like Thanksgiving - clam dressing without the turkey.)

1/2 lb. linguica
Portuguese bread
1 onion (some recipes use celery and peppers too)
2 c. shucked quahogs
ketchup (not usually mentioned!)
1/2 tsp salt & pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper & allspice

Soak bread in water. Dice and saute onion and quahogs. Drain bread, add to sauteed ingredients with spices and ketchup. Simmer until moist. Cool and stuff between quahog shells. Tie with string and bake 1 hour at 350.
